Friday means Crafty Catz challenge......


Good morning, It's certainly autumn weather this week, I have the electric blanket on to warm my bed before I dive in lol.........even got cardigan's out!!
This week at Crafty Catz we have a fab challenge for you......... We would like to see cards for Men or Boys!
Can I first say thanks to the ones who joined in last week as I see it was not a favourite for many of you.
This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Mei Flower who will be giving a £20. gift voucher to use in their online shop or £20 worth of craft goodies (this is where most of my 700+ ribbons come from)

Our other sponsor is Digital Delights who  are offering........


Here is my card for this week............

I used an Inkylicious 'vintage birds' stamp on to mottled green card, matted on to 'Old world stack' I have had for ages, matted on to mustard card which I lightly printed with a music stamp (no name) matted onto rust card, sizzex die from craft show, ribbon off bath set, card candy and peel-off sentiment from stash.
It was made for my neighbour who retired last month.

I am entering the following challenges;

4 Krafty Girlz Challenge ------------ Anything goes

Aud sentiment Challenge ------------- Autumn (colours plus trees losing their leaves)

Ruby Rainbow blogspot ------------ Masculine

Creative Card crew ----------- things with wings

Sentimental Sundays -------------- something *tweet*

On Wednesday, I went across to Liverpool to meet up with a blogging  friend Jo......... she was doing a demo on quilting,  in another of my favourite shops........ Aberkhan !! Jo is the one who organized the Lily Bo quilts for children undergoing cancer treatment at Alder Hey Children's hospital, (Check it out on my side-bar) I have made 9 so far....... so sad that they are needed at all. Of course I did have a little spend, but for me.... I did good!! I got lost, got wet and paid a fortune in car parking, but it was worth the journey lol

Have a good week and hope you can join in with our challenge.......
Hugs Christine x
